The first original Japanese single from BTS of 2019 has arrived, and it is an uplifting dance power ballad sure to brighten up anyone’s day.
“Lights,” released worldwide today (July 2) as midnight struck in Japan on July 3, is an inspiring track that soars with the members’ sweet vocals and evocative raps as they sing about the light they bring to listeners, and what they give to them in return.
"Within the noise, time stops/ We are connected by sound,” the members sing in the song’s pre-chorus before addressing how "you," what may be a reference to their fandom ARMY, is their light. The motivational brightness is twofold, as they later address how they serve as the light to ARMY, with BTS and their fans brightening up one anothers' lives. "Let's walk forward without fear, you and I."
